St. PETERSBURG, FL — Aegis was recently named one of Florida’s Best Companies To Work For.
The annual Best Companies To Work For In Florida list featured in the August issue of Florida Trend magazine ranks 100 companies in small, medium and large employer categories.
To participate, companies or government entities were required to have at least 15 workers in Florida and to be in operation at least one year. Companies that chose to participate underwent an evaluation of their workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems and demographics. The process also included a survey to measure employee satisfaction. The combined scores determined the top companies and the final ranking.
“It was interesting to see how the Best Companies plan to operate, going forward, as the pandemic’s threat wanes,” says Executive Editor Mark Howard. “Many of our Best Companies are ‘high-touch’ companies that rely on collaboration among their employees and/or face-to-face contact with their clients. And most indicated that they intended to return to traditional in-office operations. But it’s also clear that many have found that the company’s performance didn’t suffer greatly with employees working from home. Most firms indicated they’re willing to give employees more flexibility in being able to work at home at least some of the time.”
“To see our name on this list brings a massive smile to my face says Aegis CEO, Blake Dowling. “The past year and a half have been unlike anything any of us have ever worked and lived through. To be recognized by Florida Trend amidst the chaos of 2020-2021 shows the depth and commitment of our group of professionals here in Tallahassee. This one is for them as it shows they look out for each other every day and care deeply about their craft. For all that wear the Aegis blue this is for you and our sincere thanks to our clients and Florida Trend.”
